OUR STORY

Welcome to the home of the Manly Warringah Softball Association.

Based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, MWSA is the largest and one of the most successful womens fastpitch softball associations in NSW.

In 2016 Softball NSW voted MWSA the “Affiliate of the Year”.

Our competition is female only and is divided into Seniors Grades and Junior Divisions. The Senior grades run from our highest level players in A Grade to our most senior players in Ladies Grade (over 35’s).

The Junior Division is age restricted – the player must be under 19 at the end of the competition year. Junior divisions runs from Division 1 through to Division 4 for players 12 and over, modball for the under 12’s and teeball for the under 10’s. 

The competition has a grade or division to cater for every person – the mature, the very young, the novice and the experienced. 

Further information on our members clubs is available from the Club Websites page – an email address is listed for each Club – or by contacting the Association directly (info@mwsa.com.au).
